Bobby Allison & Bobby Isaac article in Vintage Motorsport

The former documentary writer-director, William Edgar, chose to make a number of motorsport films during his television production years. One of them—“The Wildest Road”—took him in May 1971 to South Carolina NASCAR country at Darlington Raceway to meet legendary stock car drivers Bobby Allison and Bobby Isaac at the Rebel 400 Grand National. The two Bobbys’ stories, and this filming experience, are now featured in Edgar’s 5-page article for the March/April 2017 issue of Vintage Motorsport magazine. Isaac is the reigning series champion struggling to remain on top; Allison has spent his racing budget’s last five thousand dollars on a new engine to run this grueling Darlington 400-miler and stay in the show. 46,500 fans are there to witness the outcome. Photograph above of Bobby Allison’s Dodge at speed during qualifying time trials by William Edgar.
